SOURCE: car is jerking engine light is flashing and smell gas

With modern cars it is bad when the engine light just comes on and the vehicle does something very different. It should not be driven. If the car is smelling of fuel and jerking it is because it's miss-firing (i.e. one or more cylinder is not getting spark but is getting fuel). This can be anything from electrical/electronic to mechanical like a broken rotor cap (as an example). The good thing, is that the light is coming on and a mechanic can check the ECU for error codes. Alternatively, you can buy or barrow one your self and check it out on your own (I think even certain auto-part stores will check it for you as long as you get in the zone;). 1996 is a good year for that since that is when OBDII started and all vehicles started using the same port to check for issues.

SOURCE: check engine light came on and car is jerking and acts funny in low gears

could be the iac valve, idle air control valve.
at the beginning check for air leaks, a scanner will be enough for to know the reason,

Check engine light flashing and shakiness in car accompanied with burning smell.


The check engine light flashing is a pretty much universal sign that you have a misfire that is bad enough that a lot of raw, unburned fuel is being dumped in to the Catalytic Converter, to the point that it could be ruined if the problem is not taken care of very quickly.

Leaking transmission fluid


If the fluid is leaking it should not be at normal level when you checked it unless it was overfilled.
Did you check it with the vehicle idling in park?

I can smell burning oil smell inside my car sometimes when i turn the heat on.and the engine light also came on couple of days after. i jus changed the oil and filters 3 weeks ago. can someone please


depending on the type of car, you might have oil leaking directly onto the exhaust system, which is dangerous as it could possibly ignite. I would take it back to the oil change place and have them double check the oil filter to make sure the seal isn't leaking. AutoZone or Advance Auto can hook a mini scan tool to the car and tell you why the light is on.

Gas smell and burning smell from honda 1997


Could be two different problems.
If the check engine light is not on, I would look at the vapor canister for the gas tank. Its usually mounted in the engine compartment.
If you have a small oil leak, the fumes will be sucked into the passenger compartment thru the cowl vents.

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier


Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.
